Sorry to post another question so soon. I’m using Cubase LE AI Elements on Windows 7, along with a Focusrite Scarlett CM25 mic and 2i2 audio interface to record solo classical guitar. I have the gain set at 12 o’clock. Any more and I pick up some kind of background hiss. Output is set near zero. It all sounds great to me while recording and listening to playback on Cubase, but I have the output to the headphones set pretty high. When I export as a .wav file, however, it’s clear that the output volume is way too low.
I’d appreciate any suggestions. I hope it’s not simply that I have to increase the gain on the mic, because that will introduce a lot of hiss and necessitate post-recording messing around. I’ve already tried using higher gain and then applying Noise Gate, but this clips the quieter notes from the guitar.
